CO2 compressor technology for a decarbonized energy economy
Because of H2’s potential in the context of developing a decarbonized energy infrastructure, technologies for efficiently producing, transporting, storing and utilizing it have attracted significant investment.
Extending the European H2 Backbone: A European H2 infrastructure vision covering 21 countries
In 2020, eleven gas infrastructure companies published a vision of a European Hydrogen Backbone (EHB), a dedicated H2 pipeline transport network spanning 10 European countries. This article presents an updated and extended EHB vision, now involving 23 gas infrastructure companies from 21 countries.
Cracking the chicken-and-egg problem of large-scale H2 refueling networks
For the large-scale deployment of H2 fuel cell vehicles across the U.S. to be feasible, tens of thousands more H2 fueling stations are needed and geographic coverage must drastically expand.
Editorial Comment: Infrastructure development will play a crucial role in the global H2 economy
Many nations around the world have set ambitious net-zero emissions goals, as well as enacted new regulations and initiatives to meet those targets. Undoubtedly, H2 will play a major role in global decarbonization activities.
Regional Report India: India’s efforts towards global carbon neutrality
At COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland, UK, Indian prime minister Narendra Modi announced that India plans to achieve net-zero emissions targets by 2070. India’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) announced 2050 as a net-zero target; however, due to the size, population and social fabric of the country, an additional 20 yr is likely necessary to achieve net-zero emissions targets.
Blue H2 co-generation with synthetic fuels
Ultimately, the H2 economy is expected to rely on electrolytic green H2, which will provide complete decarbonization; however, green H2 cannot presently compete economically with H2 derived from fossil fuels.
Accelerating the H2 economy through digitalization
Digital technology will be an essential component in delivering the H2 economy, accelerating and de-risking innovation, de-risking adoption and enabling faster and better scaleup and optimization of the H2 value chain.
New technology for producing efficient, low-emissions H2 and syngas
Syngas has a diverse range of applications, including the synthesis of methanol, oxo alcohols and synthetic fuels; approximately half of all H2 produced worldwide is used to make ammonia, which is then turned into fertilizers or other chemicals.
Heavy oil hydroconversion using an upflow reactor variant
In heavy oil hydroconversion upflow reactors that use supported- or slurry-type catalysts, H2 or gas containing H2 is fed into the reactor’s bottom by means of bubbling.
H2Tech: Technology spotlight
Hysata’s team has published results of its H2 electrolyzer technology research, which confirms its “capillary-fed electrolysis cell” can produce green H2 from water at 98% cell energy efficiency.
Update on the latest projects in the global hydrogen sector.
Global projects data
Gulf Energy Information’s Global Energy Infrastructure database is tracking nearly 930 active H2 projects around the world.
